Front Porch Realty chatted with local veteran lender Alex Macklin about finding the right mortgage for your needs. Alex has been a community leader in Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs for over 20 years and is wonderful at explaining the mortgage process to our clients. Finding the right mortgage financing program for your new home or construction/permanent project can be complex. Allow me to navigate the complex mortgage products for you and tailor the best financing option for your needs. With over 20 years of experience in the mortgage business, I can help connect you with the right resources to ensure a positive experience. From the first-time buyer to the seasoned buyer and even the person who wants to build a new home, I can help prepare you so that you enter into the home buying/building process with confidence. I encourage clients to take advantage of my free loan pre-qualification service and to make this your first step in the home buying process. The Real Estate market is blazing hot right now and there are multiple offers coming in for most homes on the market. It is important to have your ducks in a row when you are ready to make an offer so that you can increase your odds of having the winning bid. Most purchase offers must be accompanied by a loan pre-qualification letter to ensure that you are a serious and qualified buyer. Don’t lose your opportunity to buy the home of your dreams by skipping this important first step. Since 1950, United Community Bank, “The Bank That Service Built” has provided our clients with the service level of a community bank but with the resources of a larger bank. UCB offers all of the standard Conventional, FHA, USDA and VA loan programs but we also offer niche portfolio products that help us offer financing to a broader client base. One example is a cost savings single-close construction to permanent program for clients who wish to build and finance a new home. By closing the construction and permanent loan at one single attorney closing, there are no additional fees at the end of the process. The program also allows for a one time float down option on the interest rate when the home is complete so you can capture the best rate the market has to offer while at the same time receiving rate protection during the construction period. Other unique product offerings include: • Conforming and Jumbo Portfolio loans • Special 100% financing programs with no Mortgage Insurance for Medical Doctors and Dentists • PATH affordable housing program for the purchase of an owner occupied primary residence with 100% financing, fixed interest rate and no mortgage insurance for certain census tracks within United Community Bank’s footprint Join me and the team at Front Porch Realty to make homeownership a reality!

We recently had an opportunity to catch up with Eric Coates of Detailed Home Inspections Inc. about the affects that water can have on your home. Here is what he shared with us. Water is not your house’s friend! I really do love my job. However, there are days that I do not like my job. Hurricane Matthew came through our area in 2016. It dumped 10 inches of rain that day. I had the privilege of performing two home inspections that day!
